Anybody watch it?
I did... and I don't think this season will do as well as last, to be truthful.

I saw the first episode, glad that loser Debb was thrown off, she added nothing, plus she was horrendous to look at. Her accent was annoying as hell too.

Poor Deb,

I didn't want to see her go. However, I do see why, mainly what TWANeedsnohelp cited. I could tell early on that she was a little on the annoying side/she didn't really fit in.

WHo I don't want to see go soon is Jeff. The guy is going to be very entertaining. Why boot him off? If we boot off all the characters who barf, whine, have personality and say provactive things, then there is no show.

Deltaflyertoo,

Ditto on the remarks about Jeff. He's going to be a funny dude. Probably piss of a few people, but I like his candor and jerkiness. Debb was boring and just obnoxious.

You're exactly correct... I had to cringe every time I looked at her. Ugh.
I like Jeff too- he seems pretty cool and to vote him out just because he was sick for a bit would have been premature. And I forgot- who was it that ate the fruit that had all the bugs inside? I'm sure that wasn't very enjoyable...

i think survivor is a copy of that dumb mtv show.. i think it is called the real world. there are way too many real life shows. they might be entertaining but there are still to many big brother, real world, survivor, making the band,pop stars..etc. i think you understand

I doubt we will be seeing it here, unfortunately, it sounds interesting.

I saw it. I already cannot stand Kimmi. By throwing off Deb, they have basically thrown out all of the controversy, meaning that the Kucha tribe will be pretty boring to watch.

I personally liked it including the nice aviation related opening...The tribal council set is a lot nicer on this version than on Pulau Tiga-I think it was over pretty good-I kind of have to watch since I will be going to that region of Australia in 6 months!!

I do watch Survivor but here in Sweden it's called Expedition Robinson (named after Robinson Cruse).
It so sad that the best ones goes first but it's also exciting to see what's in next episode.

Simon-

Do you see the same version as us in the States do, or your own version with Swedish residents???

Does anyone (Australian) here think that having Survivor in Australia kind of take away the kind of exoticness supposed to be attached to the location? I mean Australia is about as First-World as you can get, it's not exactly like these people are in a real inaccessible wilderness. I think it would be kind of akin to dumping these people in some desert in New Mexico or mountain region in Alaska or something. It may look like an uncharted wilderness, but you know if there is an unforseen emergency that even CBS/Viacom did not prepare for there would be expert help arriving within the day.
Anyone agree with, want to comment on, or even understand what I am trying to say??  Smile

I agree, Aaron!
I think next season it should be:
Survivor: Saddam's Playhouse
or something like that, where the cast members are challenged to outwit, outsmart, and outplay each other to escape Saddam's wrath after being placed in the desert outside of Baghdad.

or maybe
Survivor: Siberia
where the sixteen don't even have to outwit, outsmart, or outplay each other- just whichever one is left after all other fifteen become frozen solid gets the million dollars.

or how about this one:
Survivor: the Clinton Mansion
Not only do the survivors have to make sure not to find themselves alone in an office with Bill, they have to steer clear of confrontations with the man of the house, Hillary Clinton. The winner doesn't get one million, though- they just get the chance to get out alive.

So- do you think I should contact CBS' marketing department?

Aaron, I understand what your saying but I believe where the series was shot was in a very remote part of Queensland. I also recall from watching that program they had on about the 1st series that there was a fairly large town located very close to the island. As far as I know this place in Queensland was quite a few hours drive from CNS with a lot of it being dirt roads. I'm sure in an emergency such as snakebite they wud have people flown out very quickly to a hospital in CNS. Having driven in outback Queensland I can tell you at times you can go for a long time without seeing another car. Hope this helps
